Announcing: CLiki2 public beta 2

Topic: Lisp

CLiki, the Common Lisp wiki, is a good resource for finding out about Common Lisp libraries and other information. However, the code behind CLiki itself is hard to maintain and hard to add features to.

Andrey Moskvitin and I have been working on a replacement wiki web application on and off for the past eight months. The first public beta came out in the summer. Since then, I have worked the software to the point where I think it is ready as a replacement to power CLiki.

The second beta of CLiki2 is now up at http://dead-link. Please try it out and let me know what you think. Bugs can be reported at https://github.com/archimag/cliki2/issues or by sending me email.

Most of the new features center around spam prevention:

Other new features include:

Pages are marked up using a mixture of HTML (with some tags and attributes filtered out) as well as a slightly simplified form of CLiki syntax.

Behind the scenes, CLiki2 is powered by Hunchentoot, BKNR-datastore, and Nathan Froyd's diff library.
